Frans De Waard - "Eight Lines"

Empty voice mail messages received as audio files via email are the source material for this new ep. Static, beeps, and slowed down voices. Unsettling and full of apprehension.


Run time 20 minutes
Label / Recorded by Frans De Waard

Notes

"I like the premise for this, as Frans de Waard took office voice mail audio files that were given to him and mixed em up some. The files were supposed to be empty, but there are traces of murky voices in the high-end static. In this age of identity theft, spam and file corruption in communication technologies, this is a ripe look at the per-chance mistaken invisibility of information, or at least art of the picture. Can't really tell if he slowed it all down, or if its technical difficulties have left blurs in these lo-fi transfers. And that's what they sound like, with answering machine beeps and all. More like the essence of something else - like the process of transferring a Polaroid to another surface material. You get "part" of the story, the way a copy machine degrades an image with every pass. This is the phraseology of something that once was, the ghost imprint of its birth state. There is a blank-stare humor to the way that it's almost a lock groove for unanswered messages. It just continues to degrade into the abyss. " - TJ Norris, igloo mag

Subject: Disturbing
Static hiss, slowed-down voices, and an annoying repetitious bleep make for twenty minutes of disturbing listening. Good for a nightmare or two. Listen to it loud or with headphones.
